Sister's House Tour Continued

12.21.2010

How is everyone's week going so far. I have soooooo much to do this week and I am sure many of you do, too. Tis the season. I went and bought all the groceries today for the upcoming holiday. Need to take out a loan for that one. Have a hair appointment in the morning and then I will start baking tomorrow. Bailey has a vet appointment Wednesday and a grooming appointment Thursday. My son and family will be coming on Thursday, too. So much to do!

I shared some pictures of my sister's house decorated for the holidays and didn't want to overload you so here are the rest of them.



This is what you see when you first get up on her front porch.








She placed lighted presents on this stand. I am sure it is cute at night all lit up with the bright colors.





They had to place bricks on these trees to keep them from blowing over.


I just love her front porch, but way too cold now.










Let's go back in where it is warm. How about the breakfast room.

















Even the dog has his own stocking, of course.

Joining Marty at A Stroll thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday.

Make it a great week!

KIM

Don't forget to link your posts up tomorrow night for the Boring to Better Party. All Christmas decor is still welcome plus any of you who have had time to work on makeovers let's see those, too!

  7. Busy, busy, busy!!! I got groceries today too, so let's apply at the bank together for our loans, okay? Your sis's house is lovely. I'm sure you're both a great inspiration for each other.
    Best,

  19. I ended up putting red and green shiny ball ornaments all over that green wreath on my porch. I decided it needed a little bling so you could see it better at night. Then, I wrapped white lights around my porch columns so it looks all bright at night. I SWORE I wasn't going to do too much outside this year, but after driving around and looking at more Christmas lights I was inspired to add a touch more. It's a sickness, I know! I've got a busy week too. I spent time running errands and shopping today and then I have a dentist appt tomorrow and Wednesday. I've been doing tons of laundry and still have some house cleaning to do. Cody's truck needs work, so he's using my car to get around. Jimmy hurt his back lifting something too heavy. So, he's been laying around on an ice pack. It's been crazy around here! Is Christmas over yet???

  20. You both are wonderful decoraters, you just know where to put each item, love what your sister did with the lighted presents!

  21. Look at that green lawn! As I sit here at the computer, I am wrapped in a huge snuggly blanket! It is stinkin' cold in these mountains. Your sis's porch is beautiful! I love the windows that go nearly to the floor.

  27. Kim-What a great eye she has for decorating. Guess you both fell off the same family tree! We have out little trees weighed down too and they have still blown over twice!

    I love her front door and it would be fun to see those packages lit at night..must appear to be floating. Nice tour- Diana

    Merry Christmas and may you all have a wonderful time together.

  33. I have so enjoyed seeing your sister's home at Christmas, Kim. Absolutely beautiful.

    Your guest room is lovely.

    This is the first morning of my break I've had time for coffee and blogs. I bought our Christmas meal Sunday and yesterday and had appts, too. I really needed this little break.
    I'm preparing our guest rooms. The kiddo's are only 30 minutes from our home, but we are expecting a winter storm, beginning Thursday. We are promised a white Christmas. One daughter and her family have plans to spend the night here. We may have more overnighters, if the roads get bad. We are excited about the extra time with family.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family!
